Too bad this one can't be streamed, but hopefully many of you have it already in your HD or on Disc. One of my favorite shows, for both quality of recording and quality of playing. The Help>Slip>Frank>Music Never Stopped opener is just outstanding, setting the stage for a thoroughly memorable evening. If you have this one, either as a download, tape, or the commercial release and you are like me, this one never gets old and I always love an excuse to spin it.

For those of you who don't have this one, it is one that I highly recommend you seek out for your collection.

Ok so I'm the only one who doesn't like Neil Young (aka Neil Yuck) but I know most of you can appreciate a ripping show from Jerry. How can Jerry be in such terrible shape yet have one of his best week of shows ever? If you like the coked up Sugarees (like 10-17-83 or 3-25-85) then this show is worth seeking out.

8-13-1984 Club Casino Ballroom, Hampton Beach, NH
Set 1 (64 minutes)
Cats Under The Stars
Knockin' On Heaven's Door
I Second That Emotion
Mississippi Moon
Tangled Up In Blue
Set 2 (43 minutes)
Sugaree
Run For The Roses

yeah! one of my first jgb tapes and an all time favorite. the sugaree is epic and cats is great, but second that emotion and the end of knockin' are my favorite parts. jerry is belting out some soulful moans at the end of the knockin' and his playing in second that emotion is just bouncing and flowing with endless joyful melodies. so good. the previous night is pretty hot too.

always love a good Rhapsody in red. 1984 JGB shows had very short sets. 43 minutes for this second set. I also have one from Irvine this summer. 5 song first set and 3 songs in the second.

this might be my favorite show , at least in my top ten shows...it really was well played and actually rehearsed alot...down to the crickets in the box with the mic up to it ....I actually like the original mix from the fm cassette soundboard over the remastered version...they're both great...I don't have access to mine, still back at my house with the ex wife, hopefully I will be able to recover it...this show is just great and kieth has the keyboard sound with the phaser on it sounds really great...I still think blues for allah is the dead's best record...the eyes of the world>king solomon's is incredible...and the live version of blues for allah is superb, I wished they did blues for allah at least some of it live again, we were really hoping for it at the pyramid in memphis in 95, but that was a longshot

bill graham "I'm being paid 50 dollars to be here.." after saying he won a bet with somebody back stage...how typical, but great stuff that's left out of the remix commericial version

I can only listen to CD2, CD1 went missing a long time ago and I have not seen it since. Thankfully there is a really nice 8/13/79 on the archive for me to celebrate "This Day in History"

Anyone know why this 8/13/79 show's notes say "Phil's Big Night" and "This was a special night for the band"?

Just wondering...

I agree on the 79 from today. Nice stuff typical of the year, no doubt. Unfortunately for me, the stream is being very temperamental and is only giving me snippets of a few songs (especially the large Shakedown opener). Fortunately, the outstanding Miller SBD is working just fine (although it is only the first set). The other SBD is, to my ears, not listenable. I'll just hop over to the AUD for the second and hope the stream is working better. 75 or 79, it's all good.

an absolute classic. incredibly confident and expressive playing and singing from jerry and the whole band throughout. maybe the best crazy fingers ever (jerry's solo is so beautiful) and the intro>h>s>f is pure gd magic. the strong performance, gorgeous recording, and well rounded (and relatively digestible) set list make this a great show to play for newbies. just totally classic. i will listen today.

I've been to the beautiful GAMH a few times, saw stuff like JJ Cale and Robert Hunter ( spoken word ). Basically mellow stuff. I can not for the life of me imagine the sheer power and force of the GD ( especially with the new material and the re-addition of Mickey) in that building. I'm surprised it was still standing.

I live a block away from the GAMH and it is still a wonderful and magical place. Not too many better places to see a show in this burg or any other for that matter.

To see the dead in that small building would have been a life-changing experience to say the very least.
